(WHAS11) --If you grew up wanting to be an astronaut now is your chance to live that dream!
The nonprofit Mars One wants to develop a human colony on the red planet by 2023 and they're inviting anyone on planet Earth to apply for a spot.
The group just released a list of what it's looking for including personal drive, psychological and emotional stability, and creativity.
At least six groups of four people will be selected and trained for eight years in electronics, medical care, and other life skills.
If you're picked for the colony a fair warning: Once you're on Mars, there's no coming back!
